About Me

I am passionate about life and working as a psychologist in private and corporate sectors. I pride my work as a clinician and enjoy working with a broad spectrum of clients. My clinical areas of expertise include stress, anxiety, depressive, body dysmorphic, eating, sleep and circadian rhythm disorders.

I value people, knowledge and health. Since 2002 I have been presenting at State and National conferences and shared research about common mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression in Australian workplaces. Between 2005 and 2015 I worked as a beyondblue Facilitator with the National Workplace Program (NWP) to help breakdown the stigma associated with anxiety and depression conditions.

I currently serve in the Royal Australian Navy as a Navy Psychologist on a part-time basis. My duties vary but include counselling for issues of personal concern including anxiety, depression, relationships, anger management, and stress. I think it is important all working Australians manage stress effectively as we become more challenged at maintaining wellbeing.

In summary, I consider myself an interactive; brief solution-focused, cognitive, behavioural, existentialist and mindfulness-based psychologist. The counselling approach and therapeutic interventions I apply aim to effectively address mental health challenges and problems with scientifically based solutions.
